If you've never experimented with different ingredients, making changes to a recipe may seem daunting. To be fair, sometimes simple changes can ruin a recipe. But with some knowledge of the ingredients' functions, you can lower the risk of having to put your creation go right from the oven into the garbage. In this banana bread recipe (and other "quick breads" like muffins), the role of salt is simply to add flavour. Therefore, removing it should only affect the taste. By comparison, in bread made with yeast, salt also control how quickly bread rises. You cannot remove it without making other changes to the recipe.


Ingredients:

(*Sodium Content)

3 bananas (*3mg)
1 cup sugar (*2mg)
2 eggs (*116mg)
1/4 cup salt-free non-hydrogenated margarine (*16mg)
1/4 cup apple sauce (*2mg)
2 tsp baking powder (*618mg)




Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Line the loaf pan with parchment or wax paper (to prevent the banana bread from sticking to the pan).

In one bowl, cream together the bananas, sugar, eggs, margarine and apple sauce until they are well mixed (will still be slightly lumpy).

In another bowl, mix flour and baking powder together.
Then lightly fold the dry mixture into the wet mixture until mixed through.
Pour the batter into the lined loaf pan.

Bake for 1 hour, or until the loaf is firm and no uncooked batter sticks to a toothpick when poked into the center of the loaf.

Wellness Tip
Exercises are Mood Altering
Proper exercises can even elicit powerful mood-lifting changes. In fact, a major study performed at Duke University Medical Center in England showed that certain exercises can be just as effective as some of the most prescribed medications when it comes to alleviating major depression. The study looked at 156 elderly patients diagnosed with major depressive disorder over a 16-week period. The participants were assigned to three separate groups: group 1 exercised but had no antidepressants; group 2 took anti-depressant medication with no exercise; and group 3 took antidepressant medication and combined this with exercise. To the amazement of the researchers, all three groups showed remarkably similar improvements in their depressive states following the 16-week trial. This study, as well as numerous others, has proven that exercise should be considered a viable alternative to medication when it comes to one of our most treated disorders of aging.
